, this is the population of the united states of america. this is a representation of the 300 million firearms in the united states today. nearly one gun per person. i say now is the right time to talk about this. more than 31,000 people die each year from gun violence. let me say this again, these are the last numbers from 2009. 31,000 people died in that year alone. 87 people die every single day. i thought that the vietnam war was wrong. every year 31,000 people to be killed. we must talk about a noun and that is what i am going and i am proud for the senator. i am proud of the president for doing what he is joined. we must all talk about this now but here is the thing. we have to do more than talk because we have talked before and we have cried before. we have to act and to me there are several things that we need to do. let me list what we need to do. first, we have to take the war off of our streets. we have to take the weapons of war also hours streets. the senators have the bills. second, we must ensure that local law enforcement is involved in revealing the concealed weapons permits.
